An Exercise in Giving and Receiving

givingreceiving

Affirmation: I AM aware of the thoughts and energy I offer the world. For what I give out to the world I receive. I AM the creator of my life.  

I’ve been studying A Course in Miracles and the lesson I just completed was on Giving and Receiving.

When you think about giving and receiving there are times when we able to give more, and other times when we are put in the position to need to receive more.  At one time or another it may not feel completely balanced but overtime life does seem to create a balance with giving and receiving. Also we need to keep in mind that sometimes things come in different ways. The energy is the same, its just that the form it chose to manifest in was different based on an individuals perceived need.

 A Course in Miracles teaches us that what we give out comes back to us in equal amounts. Whatever you offer is returned to you. The idea here is to be truely conscious in what you give out, how much you give and the feeling attached to it, because what you give comes back. This isn’t just centered around physical items, help, etc. This includes what you think.  Think negative thoughts, those get sent out and that energy comes back to you in one form or another. Think positive thoughts, those get sent out and that energy comes back to you. Now this can really put things into perspective. Think of all the thoughts that run through your head every day. The ones you latch onto, the ones that quickly pass by, the ones you voice. Listen to what you are thinking and/or saying because whatever it is, is energy you are giving and that energy is coming right back to you like a boomarang.

So the question here is: how much love energy are you giving out throughout the day? And by love energy I mean unconditional love, acceptance. Catch yourself throughout the day and notice what you are giving out. If it’s something you wouldn’t want back, stop yourself and change the energy.

Here’s the exercise from A Course in Miracles I’ve been practising.

Affirm the things that you would like to have given to you and offer them to others.

  • I offer everyone peace.
  • I offer everyone love.
  • I offer everyone success.
  • I offer everyone prosperity.
  • I offer everyone support.
  • I offer everyone compassion.
  • I offer everyone wealth and financial abundance.

As you recite what you give out feel how much of it you are giving. Then pause for a moment to allow the universe to give that energy back to you. Take your time with each affirmation and really feel what you are giving and receiving.  Do the exercise in front of the mirror and repeat it when it comes to mind as you go about your day.

Love Your Life

Love Your Life ~ Altar for Sarah Pugh | Sunset Season Opener

Love Your Life ~ Altar for Sarah Pugh | Sunset Season Opener

Affirmation: Love Life! I am aware of the miracles happening around me. I love my life. I AM LOVE.

Last weekend a part of my life was dedicated to honoring the memory of some very special people, Sarah Pugh and DJ/Music Producer Scott Hardkiss, amongst the presence of my extended and soul family at the 2013 Sunset Season Opener. The theme of the weekend LOVE YOUR LIFE!

I met Sarah Pugh a little over 12 years ago through the San Francisco Sunset Party Collective. I can’t express to you how infectious her smile and spirit were. She’s always been such a great inspiration to me. I have many cherished moments with this beautiful soul and they will certainly continue to live on because those moments will serve as divine inspiration to the gifts I continue to share. Most of them involve either dancing behind DJ Sean Murray (Pasean) or moments with the Living Fae Faerie Temple at the Sunset Campout, which typically involved Sarah showing up to help me decorate it at just the perfect moment. It was usually right around the time I was tangled up in the curtains somewhat frustrated. There she would appear, just like a faerie, to calm me down and get things straightened up.

Scott Hardkiss, I was lucky enough to have a brief encounter with back in the mid 90s where I did a short interview with him on a rave docu-film project I was working on called XTV. I’ve been dancing to his tracks for many years but there is one that stands out in my mind. The track that served as a great inspiration to me, my spiritual path, my life journey, is God Within Raincry (Spiritual Thirst). To this day, its still one of my favorite tracks of all time!

The weekened and moments like these always give you perspective on life. They help to remind us what is important, how precious life is, and how much we must love our lives.  I am so very thankful and grateful for all people in my life. Thank you Sarah, thank you Scott. Thank you Sunset! Everyone I encounter is truly a blessing.  So much love to you all!
